In this
steamy novel from the USA Today bestselling author of Blurred
 country music’s favorite good girl hides away from the
world—and finds herself bunking with a guy who makes her want to be a little
Jenny Dawson moved to Nashville to
write music, not get famous. But when her latest record goes double platinum,
Jenny’s suddenly one of the town’s biggest stars—and the center of a tabloid
scandal connecting her with a pop star she’s barely even met. With paparazzi
tracking her every move, Jenny flees to a remote mansion in Louisiana to write
her next album. The only hiccup is the unexpected presence of a brooding young
caretaker named Noah, whose foul mouth and snap judgments lead to constant
bickering—and serious heat.
Noah really should tell Jenny that
he’s Preston Noah Maxwell Walcott, the owner of the estate where the feisty
country singer has made her spoiled self at home. But the charade gives Noah a
much-needed break from his own troubles, and before long, their verbal sparring
is indistinguishable from foreplay. But as sizzling nights give way to quiet
pillow talk, Noah begins to realize that Jenny’s almost as complicated as he
is. To fit into each other’s lives, they’ll need the courage to face their
problems together—before the outside world catches up to them.

Review by Gina:

If you’re looking for a deep and complex story, Lauren Layne’s Good Girl is not for you. However, if you are looking for a fun read that flows from page to page, then look no further. The story of Jenny Dawson and Preston Noah Maxwell will make you laugh, send tingling sexy sensations to all your nerve-endings and warm your heart.
Jenny is a rush-to-stardom country music singer. One minute she’s a regular girl, the next her face is plastered all over the tabloids. I thought Ms. Layne did a great job of portraying the transition to fame and all the glorious and not-so-glorious elements that come with fame. (Sometimes I think we all think that lifestyle is just glamorous – but to live your life with eyes on you constantly is not only creepy but stifling.) Jenny has to go into hiding because of a scandalous tabloid story that has her written as a harlot going after married men. All the chaos in LA is making it difficult to write her music so she hides away in a small town in Louisiana, hoping to get back to her roots and her music. But she gets more than she bargained for.
Preston/Noah’s character has a little more depth. He’s known as two people due to the strange circumstances with his parents, so he stays on his property that he rented to Jenny as the grounds keeper-Noah. He doesn’t tell her about his alter ego Preston. His family background is intense. He prefers the more laid back lifestyle like Noah, rather than the high society lifestyle of Preston. That’s just no who he is and Ms. Jayne does a great job of portraying that through her writing.
These characters interact on multiple levels – unable to avoid each other due to their close proximity on the shared property. Noah believes Jenny to be a typical high maintenance high society woman that he thinks he can just avoid. But once he gets to know her, he realizes there is more to Jenny than she lets on.
I found Good Girl to be a very entertaining read. The characters have great chemistry and the banter between them is fun.
I give Lauren Layne’s Good Girl 3.5 silver buckles.
